The performers were top-notch professionals--VERY entertaining and talented! Although I thoroughly enjoyed the show overall, I have mixed feelings about the contemporary references sprinkled within the original story.

Lived a long time without seeing this opera, glad I went, because the venue as well as the total performance was fantastic. Feel like this should be on everyone's bucket list. Thinking of signing up for the season.

Description

Gilbert and Sullivan are the undisputed masters of comic operetta and the proud parents of the modern musical. That their works are more in demand today than when they were created over a century ago is ample proof of their lasting brilliance.

Poor dears – it would be absolutely tragic if it weren’t so hysterically funny.
